Does prior interaction with an officer constitute probable cause or reasonable suspicion for a dui stop?
I had a conversation with a tribal officer while on foot on an Indian reservation. The officer left and shortly after I also got into my vehicle and left the area. Security at the location informed the officer that I had gotten into a vehicle with a color and make different than my vehicle but he still located and followed my vehicle for a couple miles before pulling me over. He stated verbally and in his report that I had been "swerving all over the road" (dash cam footage easily disproved this attempt to assert probable cause for the stop). He then turned me over to an ISP officer who had just arrived and the ISP officers first words to me were an order to exit my vehicle. He proceeded to conduct the roadside Olympics without explanation as to his reason to suspect I was impaired aside from his conversation with the tribal officer. Given the lack of impaired driving in the video evidence, the state is resting on the idea that probable cause to stop my vehicle, (which did not fit the description provided to the officer in either make, model or color) was established through the earlier interaction between myself and the tribal officer.
"Prior interaction" can mean lots of different things can't it? You could have had "prior interaction" where the tribal...

If there is no video evidence of a dui can i be charged?
I blew a .79 and accidentally admitted to drinking. But there is no video recording of the arrest or incident. Just the police reports and the officers' at the scene's word. I also wasnt in the vehicle at the time the cops found me. Would this hold up in court? and could i be charged with dui.?

Why does my license suspension show up on my driving record?
I got a DUI in Idaho in 2013 and my license was suspended, I ended up using my withheld judgement on it, a few months ago I tried getting a driving position and it was turned down because the suspension came up when they ran the check on me. Why doesn't the suspension go away along with the DUI if that charge was the reason I got the suspension to begin with?
This is a question for a ID lawyer who does DUIs, not 'speeding & traffic tickets'. Assume that a 'withheld judgment'...
